Q Games announced that The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition will release in 2022 for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The game is an updated re-release of the original The Tomorrow Children, with enhancements for the PS5. Notable additions include new islands, features, and items, as well as rebalanced gameplay. Unlike the original’s free-to-play model, The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition will be a premium title.
Kyoto-based developer Q Games released The Tomorrow Children in partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment in 2016. The free-to-play PS4 title put players in charge of building a town in the Void, with the help of other players online. Less than a year after its release, Sony announced it would shut down the game’s servers in 2017. This made it impossible for players to continue playing the game after the shutdown.

However, in late 2021, Q Games announced that it had struck a deal with Sony and acquired The Tomorrow Children IP. Q Games founder and director Dylan Cuthbert stated that the team would begin developing the game for the PS5, with new features planned. Some key changes include the removal of microtransactions and “reverting the game back to its intended design.” Furthermore, multiplayer will be peer-to-peer to ensure the game is playable indefinitely.
